When you go to the dentists, you expect a hygienic environment don’t you? Of course!

Most dentists work hard to be as hygienic as possible but do they go the extra mile?

All dentists use gloves, masks and sterile equipment whilst treating you, but then what do they do? They type up your notes! Typing up using a keyboard and mouse. Studies have shown that a keyboard and mouse are amongst the least hygienic items in a person’s home, contaminated with a very high level of bacteria, especially between the keys.

So how clean are your dentist’s mouse and keyboard?

Well at St.Stephens Dental Practice in Canterbury we have special hygienic safe and easy clean keyboards and mouse, ensuring they are as clean as possible! So next time you go to your dentists, take a quick look at the keyboard and mouse they use. If they don’t use such cool clean technology, ask yourself, is this really the dental practice for you?
